A gang of outlaws led by Billy Gunn steal a large amount of U.S. Army gold and kill several soldiers in the process. Captain Clive Norton is assigned to track down Gunn and retrieve the stolen gold. Norton wants and needs the help of convicted criminal Chaleco who knows Gunn's habits and tricks. The problem is that the convict is about to be executed. Norton arranges for the scaffold to be blown to bits and the pair escape. The army has closed it's eyes to the rescue to allow the Norton's plan a chance to work. Both men are now on the trail of Norton for different reasons one to retrieve the stolen gold and the other out of hatred for the outlaw. They must come to terms and work with each other if the they are to succeed. Problems arise when they run into a band of Mexican thugs led by Cordero who is also after the gold. Norton also has to put up with Chaleco's pension for pursuing Gunn on his own and leaving Norton behind.
